    Finally Feeling Comfortable

    I was five foot three in the fifth grade. I was probably sporting about a size 8 in juniors and I had been playing basketball for a few years now. Since I was a little kid, school-mates and family members (not my parents thankfully) tortured me about being bigger...

    Dangerous Curves!

    As a young teenager I was very thin. I was fit and muscular because I was a ballerina. At age 18 I quit dancing because I got my first job. I was too busy for exercise and dating was number one on my list. Now, 21 years later, I am plus size. After having a baby....I got boobs...

    In today's society, the stands of beauty are

    defined by thinner women. Particularly celebrities and models alike. Yet, anyone deemed "too big" even if that means they don't have a thigh gap, they're ostracized by the media. There are men that like thin women and that's perfectly fine, but I don't think bigger girls should...

    It's taken years, but I have finally come to

    accept my appearance. I love the way I look. I love my curves and my squishy belly. My appearance is truly unique and beautiful. I used to think my fat was disgusting and no one would love me because of my back rolls. That I would be hated by others for my jiggly arms and...

    I've definitely struggled with body issues most

    of my life. I'm 4'11" which makes being on the chubby side very awkward. But as I get older, I've started to appreciate my body type more and more. I don't ever want to be skinny or lose my curves.

    Am I Really Beautiful?

    I'm 19. Growing up I was a pretty normal kid. A bit chubby but that was ok. Unlike most kids, I never got rid of my baby fat. I'm lazy, no big deal. I can't remember ever being teased about my weight. I've always been told (by family) that I'm beautiful, pretty, etc. but... One...

    Fat Or Big

    I have always been the FAT girl. It wasn't until I met my husband that I realized that it was ok to be BIG. It's not easy when your dad and sibling are health nuts, and you hear your whole life that you will never meet someone who will love you just because you are FAT. I spend...

    size 8 to be pretty. I'm a size 22 and learning to love myself, curves and all. Real men like curves. Dogs like bones ;) Self-love and confidence are sexy attributes! When life throws you curves embrace them! ;)

    I have been a size 18/20 from around the age of 15. Puberty hit me early (age 9). Even when I was still incredibly thin (and I was for quite a while), I always felt I had to lose 50 pounds. I never did anything to cause me to lose that weight, but I kept thinking...

    Being plus sized is a challenge.

    You have a constant voice in your head telling you to lose weight and be a "normal" size. But then you also have a voice that tells you that you are beautiful and to be confident in who you are. But you can't forget the voices outside your mind, nagging, yelling and telling...
